THE number of private jets using Mallorca and Ibiza’s Airports has risen considerably over the past two years.
According to Enaire, a record number of private jets and air-taxis used Son Sant Joan and Ibiza airport in 2014, mainly due to luxury residential tourism attracting wealthy visitors from Germany, the UK, France, Switzerland and Italy. This is believed to be a sign that the Spanish economy is recovering, especially in the commercial aviation sector.
Forecasts from the two main Spanish companies which operate this market, Gestair and Mallorcair are good, estimating that figures for 2015 will beat those from last year.
The rise in luxury residential tourism also means there are more sales in luxury boutiques and restaurants on the islands.
